WOW, just spent too much work time reading this thread. At the end of last year everyone was saying "United We Race." Doesn't sound like much "uniting" here.

From a fan's point of view it would be great to see high boat counts and great racing. Unifying the series' would be great, but very doubtful. I remember when OPA and OSS raced in St. Clair the same year - it was a great show. OPA has done alot and their class racing is very entertaining. This year's St. Clair show was the good too, but it would have been better with others (Bud Light, Peppers, other OSS boats). IMHO

Hopefully I get to Key West some year to see what that is all about.

This makes for some interesting reading!

I'll take that bet! If I lose the worst thing that happens is we ad another boat to the count and you get some gas money.

I'm cool with that.

Daredevil, if you are out there and having fun racing another boat or just running by yourself that is fine and good for you because offshore boat racing is about you and no one else because you foot the bill and make zero money at it.

Offshore boat racing is just a club of people having fun and not a pro level sport. Ya know it is what it is as the saying goes and people have tried to change it for years and failed. So go out there party it up, bring the family, run around the course, hopefully you class has some boat to race with and don't get hurt and have at it and have a blast!

Big Daddy...will you at least tell us will you be running in Stock O/B or P-Class...I would think if your building a new one...it would be for stock class....and if so...I'm suprised its not a Doug Wright...he has the faster Stock O/B boats out there....a proven winner...
